Sanctuary, by Utada Hikaru, Is With My Husband

I first heard this beautiful song whilst playing yet another of the Kingdom Hearts videogame franchise (never too old!). It is the theme song of Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and is used as the ending theme in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. What struck me most were the lyrics and how they relate to my feelings. A song anyone can relate to regardless of any mental health issues, inner pain, indeed anyone without any problems at all can feel the emotion here.

Each time I listen I well up inside and feel safe within the heart of my husband. A man who, though struggles at times coping with me on my bad days, loves me and sticks by my side. And I likewise with him. We met at a support group for people with fibromyalgia and have now been married for fifteen years this year. People state what an “amazing couple” we are and definitely were meant to be.

Enjoy the words and YouTube video below and see how it resonates with you.

I need more affection than you know (Reversed)

In you and I
There’s a new land
Angels in flight
I need more affection than you know ([Reversed)
My sanctuary
My sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music will tie
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
What’s left of me
What’s left of me now

I watch you fast asleep
All I fear
Means nothing

In you and I
There’s a new land
Angels in flight
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
My sanctuary
My sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music will tie
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
What’s left of me
What’s left of me

So many ups and downs (Reversed)
My heart’s a battleground
I need true emotions (Reversed)
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
I need true emotions (Reversed)

You show me how to see
That nothing is whole and
Nothing is broken

In you and I
There’s a new land
Angels in flight
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
My sanctuary
My Sanctuary, yeah
Where fears and lies melt away
Music will tie
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
What’s left of me
What’s left of me now
My fears…
My lies…
Melt away…
I need more affection than you know (Reversed)
